Shameless, the Toronto-based publication “for girls who get it,” has made a name for itself as an inclusive, progressive alternative to mainstream girls’ publications, where the dominant message is one of surface over depth. Staffed by volunteers, Shameless’ mandate is to give voice to a diverse group otherwise characterized as singularly boy and diet-crazy.
This Saturday, Shameless will be launching its latest issue and welcoming a new editorial team with a party friendly to all ages. The afternoon promises live music from Maylee and the Monster and Forest City Lovers, live comics by our own Roxanne Bielskis, free vegan cake, DJs, and dancing.
Might we repeat free cake? And to support local publications?
Shameless’ Spring Launch is on April 21 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at NOW Lounge (189 Church Street). The $5 cover charge includes a copy of the magazine. This event is all ages and wheelchair accessible.
